Give the past a future!

My company, 1821 Studios Network LLC, started with a simple purpose. Teaching local history. Along with Mark Riccetti, Jr. (Director of Operations, Programming, and Museum Curator for the Luzerne County Historical Society) we created “Fireside History presented by the Luzerne County Historical Society.” Aptly named “Fireside History” because it is recorded next to the fireplace in the summer kitchen at the Swetland Homestead, built in 1821. That spurred the creation of 1821 Studios Network. Of course, 1821 comes from the original recording studio inside the Swetland Homestead.

 

The first episode came out in February of 2021 and the official LLC was formed in April of 2022. Since then we have been downloaded over 2,000 times! One Facebook ad alone reached 6,000 people, had 700 reactions, and 40 shares. Your company can share in this success and spread its message with us, as we grow.

 

The shows are available on all major podcasting sites like, Apple, Spotify, Podbean, Google, Amazon, Audible, Samsung, Podchaser, Stitcher, and more. On top of that, episodes are available on YouTube, which have been viewed over 100 times. Plus, I am utilizing four different social media sites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. You can find me @MichaelWard1821 on all four. I also created a website which can be found at https://1821studiosnetwork.com/

If you become a patron to Fireside History presented by Luzerne County Historical Society, you’ll immediately get access to as many as 0 patron-only posts.

I think an important need is better recording software. Using restream is fine, but I can’t control the audio of my co-hosts. This makes it a little more difficult when it comes to editing. If I want the company to grow and people to enjoy the shows, the sound quality needs to be better. I would also like to use money on advertising. Using social media ads or taking ads out in local newspapers or sponsorships for different community groups and fundraisers will help. I want to help my company grow into an important part of my community, but I can’t do that on my own.
